Giant/martins

ok so to get this right Giant PA/Martins are pretty much the same...i am guessing owned by the same people or whatever..but what is the difference with all the other Giants....it kind of confuses me I have never seen a Giant other than the ones we have here, at least everyone I have seen has had the same sign and everything. thanks

The other "giants" are in another part of the country and owned and operated by a completely different company. They have nothing in common except the name.

I don't think that is true. The other Giants are in Northern VA and Maryland. Before I moved out to the mountains, I shopped them many times. I have used gift cards from those Giants at my Martins without any issue whatsoever. Absolutely, they are runned differently, but I believe they are related. I could be wrong, though.

It is kinda confusing. There are 2 Giants...Giant-Carlisle and Giant-Landover. Giant-Carlisle(they also own Martins) has stores in MD, NJ, NY, OH, PA, VA and WV. Giant-Landover has stores in MD, DC, DE and VA. Now the confusing part...both Giant-Carlisle and Giant-Landover are owned by Ahold International(Stop and Shop is also owned by Ahold). Giant-Carlisle joined Ahold in 1981 and Giant-Landover joined in 1998. While they are owned by the same company, they are completely different divisions. So, each store has their own rewards programs, circulars, promotions, etc. Giant-Carlisle is only known as Giant in PA. Everywhere else it is known as Martins.

Then there is Giant Eagle which has no relation to either of the other Giant stores. They are located in OH, MD, WV and western PA.

Anyway, I hope this clears things up a little bit.

I think Kycha is completely right. I did, however, use a Giant (landover) gift card at Martins before, so some things are the same. Also, Giant (landover) carries some of the same store brands as Martins/Giant PA, like Natures Promise.

Maybe they are working on merging them! I thought the other giant was out west. Giant Eagle is the big store out by Pittsburgh, where I am from. So i am familiar with them and they are not like Giant/martins at all!

Giant of PA and Martins accept each other's coupons interchangeably. I have a Giant by my home and my Mom has a Martins by hers. We use each other's coupons all of the time.
